    Manami's Note:

    This dish is rich and not salty at all. Bacalao is delicious when made into fritters, coated with bread crumbs and deep-fried, or served stuffed into a roasted sweet pepper. Angela Tamura, ZuZu’s chef, prepares it more simply, accompanying it with a crispy garlic crostini. Bacalao is served at ZuZu for $8.00. This recipe is meant to serve two as an appetizer, I think it would be great with soup and a salad! The cod has to be soaked overnight and the water must be changed an average of two times.It is served with garlic-rubbed, toasted olive "oiled" crostini! (I am sure you at least got my drift!)

      I had this dish at ZuZu about 2 years ago and it was great. Very tasty dish. My BF said we had to go to this restaurant and be sure to order this dish. It is definitely a dish to try.
